    Very distinctive mint, bay leaf and coconut aromas, with focused currant, spice, currant and bell pepper, turning firm and tannic on the finish.

    Didn't decant. Great experience. Complicated fruits, finish was nice.

    Doing very well for the vintage and it's age. Splash decanted for family who don't enjoy wine as much, and even they were impressed and loved how it went with the filets. Good dark cherry and cassis, fully resolved tannins. Drink up if you like those young, primary flavors.

    Not magnificent, but still very good.

In 1900, when Georges de Latour's wife, Fernande, first laid eyes on the land that would become their original Rutherford vineyard, she named it "beau lieu," or "beautiful place." Shortly thereafter, de Latour sold his thriving cream of tartar business, bought the four-acre ranch and founded Beaulieu Vineyard with the vision of making Napa Valley wines that would rival those of his native France.Today the winery continues to turn to innovative practices to craft wines in a bold, classic style. They have become a leader in clonal research, and the BV Clone Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon wines are highly acclaimed. Most recently a new state-of-the-art winery was completed within one of the original buildings. The Georges de Latour Private Reserve Winery utilizes the latest technology in combination with time-honored traditions for the production of this exceptional, wine-the longtime benchmark of Rutherford Cabernet.
